I’ve been attending NYU dental, seeing several students, and visiting. They had several “normal” x-rays, not chewing on the side for two years, then finally had a root canal done in April 2015. I’m here wondering about my next step. Last Thursday, I went for the temporary crown; still, the tooth has sensitivity when biting the softest things. I don’t think a permanent crown will help. I shouldn’t feel this seven months after a root canal. I am considering removal & implant if canal re-treatment is needed.
You should see the dentist or the Endodontist who worked on your tooth and go for post-op!
It is possible that the tooth is traumatized, and you might need a bite adjustment, or the infection from the nerve is not all removed, or the tooth is cracked.
If the crack is under the bone, you need to extract the tooth and place a tooth implant with a crown afterward.
If the crack is above the gum, you can salvage your tooth and have a crown placed after the necessary build-up and preparation of your tooth. For more information on crowns, click here: https://www.celebritydentist.
See a root canal specialist, and let him tell you if the tooth can be saved.
If it were my tooth, I would much rather have it saved than a dental implant!
